"This is the book that taught me the science and training necessary to run faster marathons. It's clear, smart, precise, and full of terrific advice. My first edition is full of scribbles, underlines, and notes, marking a progression from 3:18 to 3:06 to 2:43--and, more important, to a true love of the sport. This edition is even better. Read it and run."
--Nicholas Thompson, Editor in Chief of Wired
"I've been referencing Advanced Marathoning since I first entered the marathon scene in 2013. Several buildups and top 10 finishes later, it's still the book I turn to for research- and experience-backed information about pacing, tapering, fueling, stretching, and more. Advanced Marathoning is a comprehensive and essential resource for anyone wishing to find their potential over 26.2 miles."
--Becky Wade, 2:30 Marathoner and Author of Run the World
